Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee

Civil Service effectiveness inquiry

Inquiry status: open

Accepting written submissions. The deadline was Friday 1 December 2017; there is no guarantee that evidence submitted after this date will be taken into account in the inquiry but if you would like to send a submission please contact Committee staff.

Scope of the inquiry

This inquiry continues the unfinished inquiry 'The Work of the Civil Service', which had to be concluded with an interim report as a result of the snap election.

This inquiry will focus more closely on how Ministers and civil servants work together. This reflects research based on extensive interviews with serving and former ministers, SpAds and Civil Servants conducted for the Committee over the past year. 

The Committee will also focus on the present context, which is the Civil Service’s capability and capacity to cope with leaving the EU.

Terms of reference: Civil Service effectiveness
